When are we going to get some real analysts to provide insight into the games??
Kypreos, the old man, pierre mcguire and the rest should all be taken the back of the barn and shot. They can't even explain basic analysis on goals. They never get beyond, "well the other team scored because the goalie didn't make the save". Well duh.
Carey Price is being questioned left, right and centre about being too young and not making saves and letting in easy goals...especially last night.
Listen, anyone worth a damn with even 2 cents worth of hockey knowledge knows why the first 2 Philly goals went in...and it wasn't because the goalie should have made the save. But there's the Kipper and the old man blaming Price.
FFS sake guys. What these sports shows need is a Defenseman who played in the NHL to explain that, hang on wait for it, the reason those two goals were scored were because of the BEER LEAGUE type of play the montreal defensemen did. ( And have been doing the whole playoffs)
If you don't know what i'm talking about well, to you maybe it does seem it's Price's fault those goals were scored. But trust me, as a D-man, you have 2 options when faced with a 2 on 2.
1. Make the play AT THE BLUE LINE or
2. Back in a little bit but force the puck carrier WIDE, not to the centre where he can get a shot off using you and/or your partner D-man as a screen on the goalie.
What do the HABS Defensemen do? Back in, let the man cut to the centre and get a screen shot off. Bush league! Even guys in the ECHL don't play like this.
But our expert hockey analysts completely ignore "why" a goal is scored and only look at the result. Frickin brilliant boys!
Bring in Paul Coffey, Ray Bourque, Phil Housley, Larry Robinson, or even my frickin Hockey coach from when I was 8 years old and you'll get real analysis.
